's lead, the gop's ted cruz problem. his camera-loving crusade against obama care drove the party to record lows. and it seems the texan is just getting warmed up. he spent the weekend pretending to be a populist in iowa. and what's better than having the right wing pr game of a little pheasant hunting trip with the far right tea party congressman steve king. great for the image. before hunting, cruz received multiple standing ovations from the rabid right where he continued his myth-telling campaign and the crowd loved it. >> we are facing extraordinary tletss to our nation. we are seeing an administration that seems bent on violating every constitutional protection we have in the bill of rights. >> an extraordinary threat? more of their trademark fear mongering on display. and despite poll numbers sinking like a stone, the gop hasn't learned anything over the past year. take a look. >> it's the number one job killer in this country. >> there's this big cloud hanging over small business right now. it's obama care. >> and it's denying care to millions. >> under obama care they're
>>> this sunday, can obama care be cured? >> what a disaster, what a train wreck. how much obama care is hurting millions of americans. >> this is not about the website, it is really about health care. >> the troubled rollout and the major issues still unresolved. did the administration put election year politics ahead of implementing an effective program? is there enough time to fix the website problems before the program suffers major setbacks? can the government manage it all? this morning as even democrats are calling for changes, we take the debate out of washington and explain the impact this fight will have on people relying on the new health care system. >>> plus, a tough week for the president's foreign policy. new revelations about u.s. spying on allies, including the bugging of the german chancellor's phone. undermines critical relationships at a sensitive time. >>> and does the mideast trust this president? the fallout between syria and iran. the conflicts of global influences ahead. our roundtable is talking about politics and parenting this week after maryland's att
rollout for obama care through the website. are you as frustrated with how all of this has started? governor kasich? >> is that to me? >> yes. >> yeah. well, look, david, the problem is obama care doesn't control costs. secondly, it's going to drive up the costs for the vast majority of ohioans. it threatens business to grow beyond 50 employees, and frankly, what i think has to concern everybody, this economy is stalled and people don't know what the future is going to bring. and when people are uncertain about the future, they sit on their wallets, and that's why we're not seeing the kind of economic growth that we need to see that's so vital to create new jobs here in the state of ohio. >> that's the argument against obama care, but obama care is here. i'm asking specifically about the damage done by a troubled rollout that you're seeing in your state. >> well, that's got everybody just shaking their heads. and that's like three things. the government almost shut down. now they're tapping somebody's phone and now this thing. this is creating an issue of confidence in the minds of
obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in
. it was red, it's become more blue. it's gone for obama a couple of times. but it's very close. it's a changing state. growing hispanic population. it's like the country in some sense. >> the numbers are almost exactly the same as the numbers nationally. >> exactly. and you can see cuccinelli is getting killed in the polls. in large part it's because he's very far to the right. he's also tied to governor bob macdonald who has had had ethics problems. and the government shutdown. the republican identification with the government shutdown, i think, was a huge factor in this race. and will be a huge factor on election day. >> i always see interesting coincidents. coincidental facts. a third that say they don't like the republican party nationally say they're voting against cuccinelli in the other race. two-thirds saying i don't like republicans, i'm not voting for a republican. that's pretty stark evidence of what's to come. this may be the first primary for 2014 if you look at it that way. >> i think it really is. there's another since you guys love numbers, there's another number th
-play nachlg -- explanation. i have a feeling this may not be the end of it. >>> today, president obama went to the very spot in boston where mitt romney signed romney care into law. and there, president obama defended the affordable care act. >> president obama is expected to share the limelight. >> so health care reform in this state was a success. >> president obama is minutes away. >> stop in boston by the president. >> from a critical speech on his health care law. >> let's face it. we've had a problem. >> website glitches. >> website hasn't worked the way it is supposed to. >> no doubt about that. >> no excuse for it. apologize. >> i am accountable to you for fixing these problems. >> taking the blame. >> kathleen sebelius. >> we were wrong. we must fix it. >> a few committee members. >> had their rehearsed one-liner. >> to be played on cable news. >> some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari. >> has a man ever delivered a baby. >> of come on in the water is fine. >> toto, we are not in kansas. >> the proverbial, we are not in kansas any more. >> you are from kansas. we are not in
by the senate. today president obama's nominee for the same seat -- the presiding officer: the senator has used one minute. mr. leahy: thank the chair. mr. grassley: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. grassley: i want to show you why this seat doesn't need to be filled. these are the other circuits. the average of those other circuits is 383 caseloads. this circuit, the d.c. circuit, has 149. so workload doesn't demand it. secondly, we're in a situation where this administration has said that if congress won't, i will. he's going to do by executive orders. this is the court that can rule for or against the executive orders of this administration. we need to maintain checks and balances of the government. secondly, each one of these seats costs $1 million, not just a year but every year for the rest of the life of those judges serving full-time. and so that's why i ask you to vote against this cloture motion. mr. leahy: i ask unanimous consent that two more minutes be equally divided. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. leahy: madam president, i'm sure t
work cut out for us. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. i'd like to send him back to kenya, back to indonesia. >> according to the senior cruz, president obama is a marxist. let's watch this. >> we have to unmask this man. this is a man that seeks to destroy all concept of god. i tell you what. this is classical marxist philosophy. karl marx very clearly said it. marxism requires we destroy god because government must become god. >> senator cruz's office told mother jones quote, pastor cruz does not speak for the senator. but in fact he often does as a surrogate put out by his son. rafael cruz is just more than a senator's father as the national review put it ted cruz has used him as a confidant, a stand-in, and a special envoy. he has sway in his son's inner circle that makes him a power broker. he uses his father for the kind of guidance you'd expect from a consultant. as ted cruz boasted to the magazine, quote, my dad poured himself into my senate race last year in the early months. one day i couldn't make an event so he drove out to west texas alone. and he spoke on my
residents deserve to see it. and people need to judge for themselves what they see obama this video. >> fou, this video was recovered from a hard drive. 's part of a police investigation into gang activity. the mayor was featured prominently in that investigation. there's lots of pages that have been redacted and the mayor's alleged drug abuse. but there were photos that surfaced with rob ford hanging out with known drug members in front of a known crack house. there's also erratic blaif yor, questionable behavior by the mayor. he has since been arrested on extortion charges allegedly threatening those that have the original copy of this video so just thinking further, he says whatever it shows. he lant seen it? >> we don't know why he would be so hope about putting that video in public other than really to show torontoans, those in toronto, that this video is not out there. who knows what the defense is. whether or not he can defend himself even if there is vids owe of me smoking from a glass pipe, you don't really know what's in it. his approval ratings have gone up 5%. they just got a lo
lifetime. al gore in 1999, barack obama for president only in 2012. only for reelection and now chris christie. >> he has a long list of products he has liked to endorse. gold bond powder, the icy hot patch is among them, too. what chris christie is doing, this is really about the black vote. he is trying to argue that he can get the black vote. it looks like he is on pace to get about 30% of the black vote. he has prominent endorsement from black preachers in new jersey. he is going to be making that argument in 2013 that he is a different kind of republican. between african-americans and latinos and he is going to get a pretty good majority or slice of that in his pam f -- campaign. will there be a republican candidate who can match george bush's ratings among black folks? did very well in key states. can he match that or can he even get -- nixon got about 17% of the black vote. was on the cover of jet magazine with sammy davis jr. i think that's the question. is there going to be a republican candidate who can match that and whether or not it's christie. >> and the question, does s
obama care. well, he's got them down pretty good. how about those 144 members in congress that voted to default. well, they're all with ted cruz too. and then, of course, there's the basic tea party supporter out there. i think he's got rand paul beat. i think he, out of the box, if you had a choice, the tea partiers would take this guy. the conservative media, right wing talkers. they can't get enough of this guy. they want him because they love his conviction. they love the fact that he won't back down. that he can't stand obama. and, of course, obama haters a big part of this at the top. but then there is the religious right. you see, republicans love cruz so much, he was actually compared to jesus during a prayer in iowa on friday night. >> lord, we also thank you for senator ted cruz here tonight. it just seems like that we're lacking, especially on the conservative right, those leaders willing to take a stand and are willing to let the arrows come in the back of their head. and basically be crucified for their belief system. >> arrows in the back of the head? cruise filed? who
's investigation. it's causing shockwaves. >> lisa and her team does incredible reporting. the obama administration has officially granted a six week extension for shop towers sign up for coverage next year. they have until march 31st to do so. course correcting roll out of the obama care may be the least of the white house's problems. for years president obama has denied the affordable care act would change health coverage for millions of americans. in fact it's been a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. if your employer provides you health insurance nobody is talking about messing with that. if you're one of the 250 million americans who already have health insurance you will keep your health insurance. >> time and again president obama saying if you like your health care plan you will keep your health care plan but a new
. they are already under fierce attack from republicans over the health care laws. obama now faces democratic concerns that the troubled start of the insurance program will cut into the political benefits that the party received from the government shutdown and might cost government -- democratic candidates in the next elections. was named asgh most responsible. to fix it entrusted was jeffrey zeitz. this followed a meeting between vice president joe biden and democratic freshmen. it appeared that the white house would have to do more to reassure democrats who emerged from the shutdown confident of their political fortunes. onublicans have roared back a wave of anger over the health care law. people are anxious. richard derman said -- richard durbin said he did not think there was confidence. this is more of a show me moment. we were all confident that the system would be up and running. we are not confident until it is real. the anxious include senators and house members facing hotly contested races. inre are also lawmakers states with republican governors who have done nothing to promote th
think they have an opening with the failure of the obama care website, and with the cancelation policies. they're going to try to crawl, you know, back to life over what they think is the dead body of obama care. we're going to have another round of federal budget fighting and debt ceiling tussle in january and february. and probably one more round, again, before we get to the next election. so there's a long ways to go, but, you know, i think obama, you know, i don't like to get too caught up in any given poll, but this is a pretty big drop for him. and it shows his unfavorable number going up pretty high, and i think there's just been a round of things that haven't played his thing. even like the syria thing. today we have the news that they're actually getting to the destruction of chemical weapons in syria. some of the equipment. >> it's incredible. >> seems like a win, but yet that whole episode didn't really work out for him politically. in a scandal. the obama care stuff. he's taking on a lot of weight right now politically. >> okay. joy, far from learning their lesson, today the
they would swap joe biden for hillary clinton. two veteran campaign reporters say president obama saying i just don't know if i can do this, as he prepared for the second debate. let me bring in our company, editor in chief of reason magazine, matt welch and the "washington post" politics reporter, jackie kucinich. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with chris christie because he's got an election he's almost sure to win tomorrow. he's looking to send a message but as also passed over to be the vice presidential nominee. let me play for you what mitt romney said on "meet the press." >> i know that the vetting people who went through that analysis and put together their report laid everything out, but frankly there was nothing they found that wasn't already part of the public record and that hadn't already been dealt with effectively by chris christie. so there was nothing new there. and chris, by the way, chris could easily become our nominee and save our party and help get this nation on the right track again. they don't come better than chris christie. >> and, matt, these issu
one of the ones that is going to be there is more see. morsi is obama's best friend. bob from baton rouge, louisiana. thanks recall. -- thanks for the call. can check out his remarks at c-span.org. this morning's front page of "the new york times." the president will be campaigning in northern virginia . chris christie is expected to win in new jersey. democrat barbara bona is challenging the new jersey republican. that story front page of "the new york times." a look at the statistics courtesy of the gallup organization to give your sense of just where the country was back in the 1950s during the start of the eisenhower administration on the question of whether or not you feel there is a opportunity to move ahead in america. back in 1952, eight percent said not much of an opportunity .umber 87% said yes we show you how to change over the years as we listen to joe, who's joining us from bethesda, maryland. good morning. caller: good morning, steve. great show, really appreciated. this is absolutely still the land of opportunity. challenged just like a government to live within the m
president obama beware. the ghost of 2012 is loose oh. >>> what you often hear out of washington can sound like charlie brown's teacher. a jumble of unfocused noise. >> i think it's rotting away. >> out of touch with the things you care about. >> eve got to have a president that can lead. >> we should want be injuring ourselves. >> and right now not able to do so. the campaign manager of ken cuccinel cuccinelli. >> the whole country is waiting for your choice. >> an extreme faction of the republican party, they're willing to hijack the entire party, the country, the economy. >> we want more leaders like your next governor, ken cuccinelli. therveths don't come better than chris christie. >> they try to discern things. >> there are very real consequences when you operate ideologically. >> does ted cruz stand out to you? >> put five red necks on a mower. >> i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. if dueling were legal in kentucky it would be a challenge. >> the last five years have not been a great time. >> a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things
social security and your medicare versus the cities. and barack obama lawyer from a big northern city, et cetera. and the more secular values of the big city i see it as a city versus rural thing ultimately. >> it's texas without austin, north carolina without chapel hill or charlotte. >> but the interesting thing, too, here is when he talks about we americans, what he's really saying is we real americans. >> who are they? >> you know, the group that howard just defined. there's something about this that is evangelical both in religion and political and cultural. if you listen to cruz's father speaking at some of these evangelical churches, he has an us versus them view spiritually. there's a minority of real christians. not all christians. it's real christians who understand what's going on. they're going to benefit and the world and the country depends upon them. you take that out to the secular political realm and it's we americans, we don't even have to be in the majority. it's just we who don't like barack obama who want our guns who don't want obama care, we're the real americans. s
as well as gun rights and the war on terrorism. now, president obama argues that the d.c. circuit court needs three more judges in order to get its work done. but the facts simply don't bear that out. that's not true. for example, between 2005 and 2013, the d.c. circuit's total number of written decisions per active judge actually went down by 27%, the number of appeals filed with the court fell by 18%. so instead of having more work to do, it has less work to do than it did in 2005. as one commentator has observed, the d.c. circuit already has the lowest caseload in the nation and if anything, trends show that their workload is decreasing. decreasing, going down, not up. indeed, one d.c. circuit court judge recently told the senior senator from iowa if any more judges were added now, there wouldn't be enough work to go around. well, you might be wondering then why the president and why senator reid want to pack the d.c. circuit court with three additional judges if there's not enough work to go around today. well, i would just note, mr. president, that the d.c. circuit court also has a
, with african-americans, with frankly what looks very much like the coalition that got president obama elected. but the problem with that, don, is that that is absolutely not going to help him get through the republican primary. the republican primary is full of exactly the folks that kevin talked about that are focused on pure ideology here in washington. >> he's not republican enough? >> he's not -- he is not conserve -- he is not tea party enough, let's put it that way. and he's going up against rand paul, and we saw already the division within the republican party itself when rand paul and chris christie went at each other. and there's a pew poll very interesting pew poll that says right now at least the momentum of the republican base and republican voters leans toward the civil libertarianism that rand paul represents. that does not bode well for somebody like chris christie to make it to the nomination. >> there's a new book out on tuesday, it's called "double down, game change, 2012." it says that mitt romney considered chris christie as his running mate but that his background was, qu
, actually, over the past four years, during the current administration, the obama administration and under democrat control here the last four years, we have passed all of one appropriation bill on time. that's one out of 48 that was done on time. it was a milcon bill about 2011, as i call. wrong is better with a deadline. again, you see this with the debt limit and with what we just went through these last few weeks. we can do better. this legislation would keep the impetus for congress to act without including the threat of another costly and destructive shutdown. i think it's a good idea. it's one that is already bipartisan, should be adopted by both sides. we had a vote on it earlier this year, it got nearly half of this chamber. i hope others will take a look at it. i think, particularly with what we have just gone through, it's something that our constituents would think would make a lot of sense. i hope it gets the support that it deserves in this body. of course, in addition to dealing with the government shutdown in this budget conference that we are meeting on this week, we also
barack obama does not want me to go to washington. we don't have a lot in common and so there won't be a lot of bipartisan ship unless these guys come over to our way of thinking. >> the other partner bradley burn. his statements are far from liberal. >> we are sending far too much money to other countries who do not honor our principles. we are sending billions of dollars to countries like egypt and pakistan who are using that money to attack chri christians. but for the tea party he is not christian enough and in this old bastion of the south the tea party always goes on to win the election. >> wha what happenings here could determine if the federal government functions in the next year. >> professor sam fisher says if the tea party ca candidate wins other republicans will decide it's safer not to list ento the- listen to the republican leadership. it's one. things that the parties has been effective in doing, is threatening and saying look, if you don't t tow the line in your house we'll find someone to run against you. >> the candidate has money and the tea party challenger ha
on a bill to end discrimination against gays in the workplace. it's an effort president obama has been going at great lengths to get both houses of congress to deliver on this issue, but there's a real chance that will not happen. our senior white house correspondent jim acosta is over at the white house with new details. what's the latest, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, apple ceo tim cook got a lot of people's attention today with an op-ed in the "wall street journal" where he basically called for a law that bans workplace discrimination against gays and lesbians. now presidents obama is doing very much the same, calling on congress to make that sort of protection the law of the land. once an opponent of same sex marriage, president obama has evolved into a fierce advocate for gay rights. the latest example, a subject he touched on last june. >> we've got to end lgbt discrimination in the places where we work. >> reporter: now, with the senate taking up legislation to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender americans from job discrimination, the president is calling on republicans in
. the report states president obama spent nearly five years in office in the dark, unaware of the nsa's practices overseas. officials say the targets of these programs are not typically decided by the president, but by the agency. yesterday congressman peter king defended the nsa's program saying they should be viewed as a positive thing for everyone involved. >> i think the president should stop apologizing, stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa has saved thousands of lives not just in the u.p.s. but france and germany and throughout europe. we're trying to gatherable against that helps us and helps the europeans. >> there are reports that the president did know that angela merkel's cell phone was being tapped. >> talk about a confounding story in terms of not understanding the concept as to why we would do this. why it would go unknown by the president if it was. david ignatius can you put this in perspective and snowden's role. is he still such a menace or is he revealing things we need to know? >> first about nsa collection, it seems increasingly clear if nsa could collect
